Struggling Diamondbacks ‘part ways’ with hitting coaches Darnell Coles, Eric Hinske

The Diamondbacks have fired hitting coach Darnell Coles and his assistant, Eric Hinske, the first significant changes the club has made as its losing skid stretches into its sixth week.

The team announced on Thursday afternoon that it had “parted ways” with the two coaches. They will be replaced by Triple-A Reno hitting coach Rick Short and major-league run-prevention coordinator Drew Hedman, who had been a sort of third hitting coach alongside Coles and Hinske.

The Diamondbacks are 5-30 since May 4, a stretch in which they are hitting .223/.290/.341 as a team. Their .631 OPS during that span is the worst mark in the majors. 

The Diamondbacks have lost a franchise record 19 consecutive road games, the fourth-longest streak in baseball history. They have lost 21 of 23 games overall.

Coles and Hinske were in their third seasons in their respective positions.
